U.S. and Mexican Border Policy
The border policy includes both the United States and Mexico but as well as Canada. The border policy has to do with several things as well. It has to deal with the two big walls along the southern border and it has to deal with how they do border checks now. The agreement on the wall was between President Bush and the Mexican President . They decided upon this agreement for one main reason, illegal immigrants. Although this problem is also at the Canadian and United States border, though not as widely known, it is still a huge problem at the Southern border and worries both the United States citizens and Mexico’s President .
Both groups are worried because of the economy of both countries and the side effects of workers who work for less in the United States. There is also the fear of less workers in Mexico hence making the economy reach quite a bit of a drop. Although there are many concerns held by Mexico’s President . He is worried that this wall may create difficulties for legal immigrants trying to get into the United States. Also, lately there have been problems with commerce between Mexico and the United States.
It seems that trading goods haven’t gotten to Mexico as quickly as they should be and President is worried that the construction of the border wall is to blame. He also believes that since there is construction taking place that there are less agents stationed at booths along the border which would explain the delay of traded goods. Which makes President fear other things as well. He is concerned that, though the wall is to help stop illegal immigration, that his people will still try to illegally immigrate and that they may get hurt in the already dangerous attempt. Which also brings him to a personal view where some of his family members have illegally immigrated and some may still try, even with the development of the two border walls.
